Like A Drug I Just Can't Quit

Last few days to pick up any items from The Mens Dept! That includes this great, messy hair do by Moon and these amazing eyes from Dead Apples – all of course at reduced prices for the duration of the event, so make sure you grab them quick!

Of course I’m wearing the new Romy skin from Glam Affair that’s out at Skin Fair. It was absolutely one of my favourites, and I haven’t taken it off yet. I love the combinations of make up and brows etc, that’s available, the eyeshadow in this picture is my ultimate fave.

Necklace and glasses are accessories available at C88 by Yummy for the March round. They’re cute, staple items that I’d recommend for everyone.

Just a quick post coz it’s Friday and I’m about to go off for the weekend, but I wanted to show you guys this cute new dress from Baiastice that’s out tomorrow for FaMESHed. It’s a great, classic shift style but also comes with the option of a silky undershirt too, which is colour change. It’s a great, staple piece for your inventory!

I’ll Take The Good Times

I'll Take The Good Times

I’ve been getting so fancy lately, what with all the festive, party season releases, and Collabor88′s Nostalgia theme that started yesterday has only helped to feed that trend. I picked up, 6 or 7 new dresses and a toooon of hair, so you might have to bear with me getting my glam on again for a lil bit.

This dress from House of Fox was one of my favourites, as soon as I saw the ad for it on Flickr, I knew it was gonna be love. I wasn’t wrong. I added a flower, which is actually a hair piece, on my hip where the fabric would rouch, to help co-ordinate my black accessories.

The hair is also a new item from D!va who made up for their absence at last months round by producing 4 different hairstyles and as usual they’re super sweet and wispy. Still one of my favourite hair brands for using in pics.

Other new items from C88, the skin from Glam Affair, also the more modern chain necklace from them as well and finally the clutch from Baiastice.

Oh and yes, I know I’m wearing sunglasses in the snow, thank you for noticing daaaarling!

Stole his pants, but not his heart.

Stole his pants, but not his heart.

I love these loungey pants from Apple Fall at Collabor88, and the fact that they’re made for men wasn’t gonna deter me from getting them! I know I always say it, but I’m gonna say it again. If you’re buying clothes made for the opposite sex of your avatar please make sure you demo first so that you don’t end up disappointed. Guys pants don’t always work well on girls as the hip shape is different and I usually have to do a little cleaning up in Photoshop to hide that. However, if you’re wearing a top long enough to cover them it doesn’t usually matter.

Some other new stuff from C88 is the sweater I’m wearing by UFO – a cute staple for winter, this gorgeous chunky scarf by Yummy and the pose by Imeka who are making a guest appearance.

Had to wear an oldish Lelutka hair for this style too, since nothing else in my inventory says bed hair like it!

Somewhere The Sun Is Shining

Somewhere The Sun Is Shining

Yes I know it’s October and we’re only 28 days from Halloween, but when I saw this dress from Amarelo Manga I couldn’t get the image of a girl strolling around a marina out of my head, luckily in SL we have the ability to go to just the place with a simple click. So even though it’s October and probably a bit grey outside, let’s just pretend I went somewhere fabulous like St Barths, k? K.

I’m wearing the Angelica skin from Glam Affair in this pic, which was released along with Lucy a couple of weeks ago. It’s really an adorable and youthful looking skin, but actually a bit too youthful for something I’d want to wear every day so out of the two for me, I do prefer Lucy.

I’m using another new pose from Kirin that’s from the same pack as the one I used yesterday, but I did modify this a little using Animare since the shape of the skirt meant my hand was lost in it somewhere.

So now that I realised it’s actually Thursday and not Friday (so disappointed), I’m off to do some more pics!

Sass You Like It

Sass You Like It
See what I did there? With the title? As you like it, sass you like it I’m so lame sometimes, I swear. Anyway! I have lots of new things in this post that were released over the last few days while I was off in the magical world of RL so lemme get on to that!

First of all this top from Baiastice you can find at the latest round of FaMESHed that opened on Friday. I have to say I am loving the cropped top and high waisted skirt/pants/shorts look lately and if you see me around the grid I’m usually wearing some kind of combination in that style, so it was an easy decision for me to match the top with Drift’s latest release of this funky skirt at TDR Fusion.

I decided I wanted monochrome with a dash of brights since the belt on the skirt was so vibrant and I thought that this hair from Truth that was released last week looked great in white so that got added too, and the belted bracelet I’m wearing that’s new from JD at TDR Fusion was the perfect accessory.

Finally the pose I’m using is a new one from a set that Kirin just released for The Box event, make sure you check them out!

Take It Easy

Take It Easy

I’m back today with some more great new things available at Summerfest! It opened yesterday and if you haven’t been yet then you have 2 weeks to do so!

First of all let me start with this new skin from The Skinnery. I’ve seen lots of pictures on Flickr and blogs of Skinnery skins and I always loved the natural and realistic look of them, but whenever I demoed they never seemed to be quite right on me coz of my shape or whatever, that was until today! Angie is The Skinnery’s “beach babe” skin and I have to say I’m really liking it, a lot.

The way the lips are shaded to give them extra shape, the textures and shading around the eyes to give them a very realistic and natural effect is perfect to me. I’m forever wearing dark eye circles on tattoo layers and whatnot, but none of them look as good as these ones do. There are a ton of options for the skin too, with freckles, sunburn and the under eye circles all being on tattoo layers so you can mix it up to your tastes. There are 3 different eyebrow shape hair bases and you a tintable eyebrow tattoo layer too, since the skin comes just with the blonde brows. Anyway, if you’re looking for something a bit different, I definitely recommend this skin!

Also new from Summerfest are these cute tops and shorts from Tulip. The loose tee has a cut out back which gives it a certain sassiness and makes it a little bit different from most others, and the cutoff jean shorts are a classic staple item, which I particularly love in this white wash colour. You can pick up these cool shades by Tabloid there too! Lots of colours available but of course I picked a neutral shade, since that’s usually my thing.

Finally I’m wearing a new hair from Truth, a very relaxed casual braid that’s perfect for a stroll on the beach on Sunday!

There He Goes

There He Goes

It’s almost time for Summerfest 2013! I have been so excited about this event I can’t even tell you, the line up of creators participating is amazing, probably one of the best I’ve seen in a long time.

Summerfest officially opens tomorrow, the 15th and runs for 2 weeks, with brands like Glam Affair, Baiastice, Tee*fy, Floorplan, Art Dummy and so so much more, clothes, skins, accessories, decor and poses, everything is there!. You can check out the official details here and I got to tell you, this is one event you don’t want to miss.

I got together with Harper to take a shot with some previews for you. I’m wearing a cool new swimsuit by Nylon Outfitters that you can find at the event, it’s not mesh but does come with Lola appliers if that’s your bag. I’ve added the new sunglasses and hat by Yummy which are perfect summer accesories. The pose is from a new set by Olive Juice at the event, I definitely recommend grabbing all these because it’s rare for Olive Juice to make an appearance and their items are always worth having, even if it’s just to tuck away till needed! The picture was taken at the Summerfest location, it’s a real pretty beachy sim so make sure you check that out as well once you got your new summer gear!

Also I wanted to say, from a bloggers point of view, that I’ve been really impressed with the way that this event has been so efficiently managed, with previews etc being set out on time. It’s really been a pleasure to blog and took anyway stress away that usually comes with blogging an event which I’m sure other bloggers can relate to!

You can find the credits from the lovely little package that is Harper here on her blog Pixel Pantomime, and make sure you visit Summerfest tomorrow when it opens, you won’t be disappointed!

What Rhymes With Hug Me?

This pic is just something I did for fun rather than showing off new things. Last week I got a lil bit obsessed with Robin Thicke’s video for his new song Blurred Lines, seriously I think I listened and watched it on repeat for hours, so I hit up my friends and said “omggggg guys, we have to take a pic like this video!” So here we are!

You can find Harper’s credits here and Mister’s here, even if he was too lazy to take his own pic!

Spring Showers

Spring Showers

Look at me, two posts in one day! I needed to make up for my absence so I figured why not.

I love days like this, where it’s warm outside but it starts to rain, I call this “sexy rain” when you can umm, sit, outside on your balcony in your summer clothes and just you know….listen to the rain fall.

Anyway, I mixed up a bunch of new releases for this outfit. The top is actually the new dress from Drift, but I decided to wear it as more of a sweater with the new jeans from Tutti Frutti. I love the soft knit texture on the dress, it’s perfect for spring days, and the cloud texture for the jeans is just that little bit different to make them stand out.

I added the new Isis Solar Magic necklace from Maxi Gossamer that was released at Collabor88 today. I’m absolutely in love with it, the design is so unique and it has lots of colour change options as well as coming in both gold and silver. The umbrella I picked up at C88 too, which was one of Yummy’s offerings for this round. The little neck scarf I’m wearing is from Baiastice and you can find it FaMESHed, it’s a great little accessory that you can mix and match with lots of outfits.

Yes, I’m still wearing the new Scarlet hair from Lelutka that was in my post earlier today coz well, I really like it!
